Abstract

Background:   Corneal afflictions may result in blurred vision, but in severe cases it can cause complete vision loss. In many cases, sight can be restored through a corneal transplant using donor tissues. The problem with transplantation by using donor tissues is the lack of cornea tissues available and a risk of rejection. NanoCurv Impressions has developed a one-piece state of the art artificial corneal device with nanopattern technology. Research is in progress to validate the efficacy of the nanostructures which should improve device integration and prevent infections.
